PoArt Exhibit: Nathan Nadeau [44]

Nathan Nadeau
Providence, RI, USA

9/1/2010 through 9/3/2010 - Signs of Our Times submission

Nathan Nadeau had submitted his signs to the Signs of Our Times exhibition.

JW (co-curator):
I don't suppose you have a piece that would be suitable for the Mobius exhibition "The Prostitution of Art" that you'd be willing to install at the show?

NN (Artist):
Yeah I'd be totally into the exhibition. I glimpsed over but I think I have a sign that could work. This is Jesus christs pawn shop. There's a bit more to it but I'm outta town so I'll send better pics with the application. Thanks for the shout out. I'm looking forward to getting involved with you guys!

9/6/2010 - Original Proposal

JC's Pawn Shop
This sign is a layered response the corruption and sexual exploits in the catholic church that is supposed to be a saving grace for people who rely on faith to survive day to day life. It touches on homosexual persecution conveyed through Irish Catholic 10 bead rosery's used during Protestant persecution, the churches uncanny ability to nearly swindle honest folks out of money on the belief that it will help insure a spot in heaven and an inevitable crossroad on up or down (heaven or hell) and if our choices in life do impact where we land in the after life regardless of individual religion.
